Kennedy Opens On GOP Targets By JACK BELT, WASHINGTON (API-President Kennedy is warming up his political guns for a series of forays in September and October against foes of his administration. The President feet some bursts in Wednesday's natvs conference at assorted Republicans, at opponents of his social Security- financed plan of health care for the elderly and at critics of his youngest, brother, Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy. In mid-campaign form, Kennedy picked former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, former Secretary of the Treasury George M. Humphrey and GOP Sens. Kenneth B. Keating and Jacob K. Javits of New York as his Republican targets. When a reporter mentioned Keat ing's charge that action was being delayed on the Thurgood Marshall nomination, by "ridiculous and unlawyer-like questions," Kennedy didn't resist the temptation to lake a crack at Keating, Javits and Eisenhower. The President said action on the ocratic sonntorial nomination in Massachusetts is hurting the President politically. "I think the people of Massachusetts can make a more effective judgment for a more effective Congress than even this committee," Kennedy replied tartly. "I think that they will." Kennedy was asked if the defeat of Rep. James B. Frazier Mamou Negro Is Killed By Lightning VULE PLATTE, La.

Marshall is a Negro. But Kennedy said he has as suranccs the Senate will confirm Marshall before Congress adjourns. He added : "In regard to Sen. Keating, I think it is interesting to point out that there were seven circuil court vacancies during the pre vious administration which the senators from New York had sornethinc In say about... and Thurgood Marshall was not nomi- natcd on any of those occasions." Kennedy also took a swipe at Eisenhower's criticism of the moonshot program. In a magazine article recently, the former president said efforts to put a man on the moon added up to little more than a stunt. Kennedy said it was "important, vital." Kennedy also said "We are second to the Soviet Union" in development of rocket boosters needed to carry heavy loads into space. He said "We are behind and we are going to be behind for a while" and "anybody who attempts to suggest that we are not. behind misleads the American people." Eisenhower had told a London news conference Aug. 15: "I do not agree that they (the Russians) have a space lead or I list there is a gap. I'm a little tired of that word gap." Kennedy sailed into Humphrey for charging that a Senate Armed Services subcommittee investigation of stockpiling was—as a reporter put it—"a stab at the back of President Eisenhower." Except, for the four years he served in Eisenhower's cabinet, Humphrey has been'associated for years with the Hanna mining in- teresls. The President said the M. A. Hanna Co. is being investigated in the stockpile probe—not Humphrey, except as a responsible official of the firm. Kennedy contended the firm made "extremely large profits with very little risk to the company" on nickel contracts. "I can quite understand," he said, "the desire of some witnesses to identify themselves with President Eisenhower or to limit the investigation by charging that, it is an attack on President Eisenhower, but 1 think the Congress ought, to do its job." Kennedy sat down firmly on the National Committee for an Effective Congress.
